Phnom Penh: According to the latest gossip columns, Thai Noreak Sathya was dismissed because he couldn't keep his old and his new wife from airing all their dirty laundry on social media.

The ex-Secretary divorced his original wife in 2010, but was apparently in a relationship with his wife's young cousin even before the divorce. He has known the girl since childhood and she was living in his home as part of the family, according to social media. They are now married.
Image
There were a lot of negative comments about the ex-Secretary's behavior on Facebook, and the situation was potentially embarrassing to the government.

Interestingly enough, this is not the first time that the Thai Noreak family has been in an embarrassing situation. In January 2017, Thai Noreak Sathya's son, model and actor Thai Noreak Pitou, and his wife were arrested in a drug raid in a Battambang KTV. At the time of his son's arrest, the father said that he would not intervene and that everyone is equal before the law.

The good king may have signed off on this but I suspect that it wasn't all his decision.
